Stakeholders discuss RTE Model Rules

School Choice Campaign (SCC) in partnership with the India International Centre (IIC) organized a RTE Model Rules Consultation with key stakeholders and policy makers to discuss the recommended rules and the implementation of the 25% reservation in private schools on the 16 March 2010 at IIC, New Delhi.

The objective of the consultation was to facilitate fruitful discussion amongst education experts to provide a timely and much needed feedback to the Union Government, which in turn will help State Governments in developing their rules on innovative ideas on the implementation of the Act.

The consultation was attended by 23 experts wherein issues of closure of unrecognized schools in three years time, reimbursement to private schools, curriculum development, learning assessment and ratings of all school by independent parties and the role and power of School Management Committees were discussed at length. School Choice Campaign presented its model on the implementation of the 25% reservation in private schools followed by a discussion on the same.

In order to continue discussion amongst stakeholders and monitor proper implementation of the Act, SCC proposed that a national Right to Education Coalition be formed. To facilitate this and to mainstream information distribution on the RTE Act, the Campaign launched www.righttoeducation.in
